Leave it to those wise scribes at JFNA to provide the postscript, a cadenza if you will, to our most recent Post. In a JFNA Leadership Briefing, of all places, the organization itself evidenced the annual waste more vividly than this Blog ever could.
Two weeks after the Orlando Retreat ended, JFNA published the results: Board of Trustees Examines Critical Issues at Winter Meeting. Ignoring for the moment Briefing's characterization of the November (sic) 2010 JFNA Agreement with JAFI and the JDC as both "multi-faceted" and "integrated" (whatever that means), let's turn, instead, to the recap of CEO and President Silverman's closing address to the sad remnant remaining in Orlando by the time of the presentation. Here's the way the Briefing put it: "The coming year will only bring even greater leadership and results, with a 'record' GA in Baltimore, a second TribeFest, the International Lion of Judah Conference in New York City, a series of inspiring and recharged missions, and much more, Silverman said."
In other words, $30.3 million more of going nowhere with your money.
